Running with a cough?
7:48am, 28 Apr 2012
emmieGood or bad idea? It's not a particularly severe cough, it's come at the end of a head cold which has almost gone.
It's a sunny morning and I want to run! But I also want to get over this as quickly as possible.
Any advice would be much appreciated!

StumpyGeneral advice is usually, above the neck, OK, below the neck, No.
I mean it's up to you, but if it has moved from head to chest now, maybe best to get it out of your system first?

emmieThanks Stumpy, I thought that was the general rule.
It's so frustrating because I've hardly run in April due to a mole removal from the back of my knee and then being too busy. Now I have the time and a healed knee but also a cough. Argh!
